  1. Strange Cylinder Misfire Problem

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Cylinder(s) misfires upon starting the car and stays that way under all rpm in neutral or under load. Leave the car out for a day or two and the problem is gone. I start the car again and it runs perfectly. I turn the car off for a few hours and go to start it... the cycle repeats. What's wrong...
  2. Key cylinder sticking on release now (06 9-5)

    9-5 Workshop
    I've read a few threads already, but the advice is all over the place and from years back...so I'm hoping to get better advice consolidated here. Over the last 2 weeks the key cylinder doesn't seem to want to release fully, but not every time. I can remove the key just fine, but it doesn't...

  6. Trunk lock cylinder locking up?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Weirdest thing happened to me today. Replaced passenger side inner light due to someone backing into it. Got everything back together and go to test out the lock...it won't turn.

    So, I was just about finished with replacing my clutch slave that lasted only 6 months. I got the whole assembly in and started bleeding it. Then we starting bleeding it by pedal, and sure enough Dad's foot pressed to the ground and I heard two distinct metal clanking noises come from the slave...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    1999 9-3 SE, 180K miles. Was driving to work yesterday, as I exited the freeway, clutch went to the floor and stayed there. Tried 'pumping' it up as best I could, but didn't build any pressure. I was only a couple of blocks from work, so I forced it into gear as best I could and made it there...

  12. 9-3 Convertible Top Fluid Leak

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    This weekend the top would not fully retract on my 2001 Viggen. After getting the top up and latched with a little mechanical assistance, I noticed a fluid puddle in front of the right rear tire. I believe the problem is the the hyrdaulic cylinder that operates the boot/tonneau cover. No...
